Spring Ahead with Continuing Education

Leadership: Wild West Style
Leadership: Wild West Style

This has been a long, tough winter in Calgary but the big thaw is underway. One sure sign of spring is our Spring/Summer calendar, with registration opening this week. Warmer weather can’t be too far behind – can it?

Here are some highlights of our Spring and Summer semesters.

What could be more Calgary than our new workshops, Leadership: Wild West Style? Presented in association with Bluegem Learning & Development and Equine Connection in Strathmore, these three workshops in late June/early July teach leadership skills in an unusual setting. A 1,100-pound horse won’t move just because you tug her halter. She only moves if she trusts you. Build your team and leaderships skills, and have fun at the same time.

Spring Yard & Garden courses are created for the Calgary climate. Find out about naturalized landscaping, organic vegetable gardens, water features and more. Put your green thumb to work this May.

For the first time, our Sales Development program is available in a Fast Track format. You can earn your Certificate of Completion in just 6 days of classes in August.

Human Anatomy and Human Physiology are now available online. Anyone applying for the Massage Therapy Diploma, Personal Fitness Trainer Diploma or Yoga Therapy Extension Certificate can get a head start on their program by completing one or both of these courses in advance. Completion of the courses does not guarantee acceptance into the program, however. The courses are also available to the general public.

Wondering what your kids can get involved with this summer? Whatever their interests – art, sports, science, computers, leadership, theatre – MRU Kids has something they will love. Day camps feature free before and after care, plus daily recreational activities on the beautiful campus of Mount Royal University.

The Conservatory also offers a variety of summer programs for children and young adults.

Morningside Music Bridge features a joyous month of classical music concerts – many of them free of charge – this July. Here is your chance to hear outstanding young artists and distinguished faculty on the concert stage.
